Give Dad The Gift Of Health

As Father's Day approaches, what's the best thing you can do for dad?  Make sure he makes an appointment with his doctor.

Only one in two men saw a doctor last year, three in four men are overweight, and more than one in three have high blood pressure.

"We need to make sure men are visiting their providers (doctors) so they get an idea of overall health", said Diana Scott with the Peoria City/County Health Department.

PCCHD says dads can stay healthy by getting some physical activity, watching what they eat, and knowing their risk factors when it comes to overall health.
